The HiCAP E24c is a Layer 2+, 24-port, plug-and-play, managed Ethernet switch. Environmentally hardened, this Line Replaceable Unit connects to computers, sensors, radios, etc., located within a vehicle platform creating a highly effective mobile network.
Why a managed Ethernet Switch vs an unmanaged Ethernet Switch?
An unmanaged Ethernet switch is simply a fixed “plug and play” device that enables communication among Ethernet devices. No changes to the configuration are possible.
On the other hand, a managed Ethernet switch offers multiple benefits such as:
• The ability to configure, manage, and monitor LANs
• Data path or network control
• Access control
• SNMP queries to determine network or specific device health
• The ability to monitor performance in order to remotely detect network problems
• QoS for network traffic prioritization to improve network performance
• Alternate path configuration to enable routing around a connection for cable failure
If your network performance and up time is important then a managed switch is the way to go.
